can't save properly in Dreamweaver a site made by Microsoft Publisher

Hello,

I am trying to open up a page done by Microsoft publisher in Dreamweaver. I can open it up, but when I try to save it to another file and open it in a web browser it only shows me the original page.

If I try to copy and paste into a new document, the menu ends up skewed.

I am working only on my computer for now - not online.

Thank you,

Bob Weikel

I got it to save, but the menu is still skewed.  This is for a client - I'm updating his site

From the sound of it, you may need to adjust table properties? Publisher probably set them to 100% instead of a static pixel size.

It's not tables. I can open the menu up by itself and it is skewed. It looks good on the first page, but I cannot save changes in the first page. I have to copy and paste to alnother page, and that skews the menu.

I tried deleting everything except the menu, and there is a layer around the whole page. When I try to review my changes, the whole page comes back.

Thank you,

Bob

Could it be that it has saved the entire layout into a layer, or layers? Have you tried copying single items from the original and redoing the layout within tables on a new document?

Redoing the layout with tables works with everything except the interactive menu. It gets skewed when copyied into the table in another document. Yes, it looks like there is a layer around the entire layout.

Here's the URL: jerseyfever.com

Here's the code of a new document with a table and the skewed menu.

Looks like all the links are mapped to the image317.gif on this particular page. The image size is also fixed at width=168 height=336. Try making sure that stays the same, or do that manually in the image properties. Since the image changes each time a link is clicked, there is probably a different menu gif for each destination. If you're not familiar with mapping links into images, look that up in Dreamweaver help.
